Trying to furnish a basement, looking at every room, and then trying to figure colors schemes for each room is soooo stressful. So stressful in fact, that when we were painting the basement, I wasted three gallons of paint because they just didn't look quite right. We painted the entire basement ourselves and due to the excessive workload and stress, I went into labor with my second child two weeks early. But, that's beside the point. The point is that now that the wall colors are done, I'm thinking accessory color. I really wanted a rug in the main room. I have a fabulous rug in my dining area. It's pretty traditional meaning: classic color, style, and shape. It looks almost identical to the picture above. I found this really cool rug with cutouts! So now I'm thinking traditional, modern, oriental, floral, plain, patterned, shaped, you get the idea! It's ridiculous! As I was shopping I came across some awesome sites and rugs! I love the black and white theme in the picture but, I'm not an animal print person per say.... Oh, but I do love a shag rug. Look how big and luscious this is! I just want to roll around in it! Now this rug is very patterned but, looks perfect because the walls are white and nothing else is really busy. I love this one because I'm a sucker for golds and deep yellows. This rug has just a touch. And lastly, as you all know, I love green. Not only was the room green but, the rug had some in it too! It's the best of both worlds! Oh well, while I'm still pondering this, I had some thrift store finds that need some TLC. My issue is that I need a better camera to show them. I guess we all do what we can, right?!
